The bad guys?

Last night Patricia and I watched two imported shows on the local PBS station - which in our case, because we live so far in East Texas, is out of Shreveport, Louisiana.

Both are from Australia, and both are set in the 1950s. The first was "A Place to Call Home". The second was "The Dr. Blake Mysteries." They come on one after another on Friday nights.

"Home" features a newspaper publisher who is a rapist and crooked politician. ""Blake" has a newspaper publisher who is a philanderer and local political "boss".

After the second show finished, I turned to Patricia and said, "What is the deal with Australians and newspaper owners? They don't seem to think very highly of them, do they?"
